What a great way to see and learn all about the many Oxford University colleges. Tom (his voice and antics are an alias of Michael McIntyre) was our exhilarating, extremely knowledgeable and thoroughly entertains guide. Despite the cold weather this was a tour to be highly recommended. Whilst this tour is free Tom well and truly earned his gratuity -... More

What a great way to spend a couple of hours in Oxford. Joel was erudite, enthusiatic and enormous fun. His anecdotes & historical facts were very entertaining. If you only do one tour of Oxford, then this is the one to do!

Tom was funny, passionate, smart, open to questions, and inclusive. He's a local, with classic British sense of humor, and combined a theater type experience (with his stories) with great insights, and opinions (not just memorized info). Oxford has great history, and if you have just a few hours to get an overview - of major colleges, key historical stories... More

I was walking along Broad St. with a couple of friends, looking for a walking tour, when we noticed this man with a jacket that said 'Free Walking Tours'. He already had a group of girls around him, who were giggling at everything he said. Naturally because such men are a dime a dozen, we decided to join the tour.... More

Tom was our guide. Great guy with local knowledge and made the tour very interesting and personal. We were just 6 so a very intimate tour but we saw and learnt things we would never have learnt otherwise. Wether your a Townie or a Gownie Tom had an answer for both! Heartily recommended. Thanks Tom

Had the pleasure of touring with Tom on December 1. He was highly entertaining - his "town and gown" experience of life as a citizen and student of Oxford added a certain perspective to his witty commentary. He made us all chuckle regularly and handled questions with aplomb. If he did embellish some stories a wee tad, no one seemed... More

Tom was our tour guide. His tour was excellent, informative and most entertaining, enhanced with many witty comments which did not fail to make us chuckle. He knows Oxford like the back of his hand, taking us around through a smooth and funny tour. Three cheers for Tom! Awesome.
